Spelled flour, ground walnuts, baking powder, vanillin powder and salt are put together in a bowl and stirred together. A further bowl is then used to stir milk, coffee, coconut oil, maple syrup and the crushed bananas. Subsequently, the linseed is added and stirred until finally everything is added to the mass of flour, walnuts and baking powder. Mix them all until the dough is formed.
